I've used PM v6 quite a bit. I've completely reorganized 2 disk consisting
of a variety of ext2 and FAT32 partitions. If you've ever used it, you
know that you can set up a sequence of operations, and run them in a batch.
I've had several instances where it would hang after completing one operation,
I had to reboot do the next operation... but it never screwed anything up.
One disk I reorganized had a partition table that PM rejected, and Gnu parted
also rejected it, but Linux fdisk would still work with it. I wrote down
all the cylinder setting of each partition, deleted them (except for the
Windows partiton), rewrote them with Linux fdisk, and then PM okayed the
partition table, and allowed me to resize everything.
I used Gnu parted once, to resize a couple of partitions, but I couldn't
get parted, or e2resize (whatever it's called) to resize. I ended up
simple wiping that fs out, recreating a filesystem, and restoring from
